History of Herbert Park 

Herbert Park, situated in Ballsbridge, Dublin 4 is one of the most popular parks in the city. Located in an area which has a long history dating from Donnybrook Fair in 1204 and comprising an area of marshy ground close to the River Dodder which was originally known as the ‘Forty Acres’. Herbert Park is named after Sidney Herbert, the father of the Earl of Pembroke who died in 1903, offered the site to Pembroke Urban District Council for development as a public park. Taken over by Dublin Corporation in 1932 the 13 hectares, are a fine example of how a relatively small park can provide a variety of amenities such as football, tennis, boules, croquet and children's play area, while at the same time fulfilling an important conservational role in the heart of the city. Recent developments in 2007 have been the addition of a new children's playground and an all weather multi use pitch.
